Dumfries and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue

Dumfries and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue

“In December 2001 some concerned owners of retired greyhounds and friends decided that something needed to be done to improve the lot of ex-racing and ex-coursing dogs. With the assistance of friends we were quickly able to qualify as a Scottish Charity. This has enabled us to raise funds more easily. We use what we raise mainly for kennel fees, vet fees, fostering expenses and advertising. However we also run an extensive ‘Events’ calendar (it all costs money) where we try to raise public awareness of the plight of dogs at the end of their racing/coursing careers.” LINK

“The Greyhound Awareness League (GAL) was established by Martin & Denise McGranaghan and is dedicated to rescuing and re-homing ex-racing; ex-working and abandoned greyhounds and lurchers. GAL is dedicated to raising public awareness of the plight of the retired greyhound. Our aim is to encourage members of the public to meet, and hopefully adopt, greyhounds and lurchers and to dispel many of the myths surrounding them.” LINK

GAGAH is a non-profit making organisation. It was set up in 1999 to encourage people to choose a rescue greyhound/lurcher in preference to a privately bred dog. The aim of GAGAH is to rehome greyhounds and lurchers and to raise awareness on what happens to them once they have served their use.” LINK

“Greyhound Rescue Scotland (Registered Scottish Charity No: SC033346) was formed in 2001 and since that date the charity has always been run by a group of unpaid volunteers – we are therefor reliant on public donations to allow us to continue helping what we believe are wonderful animals who deserve a better life. Our aims are to rescue and re-home greyhounds and lurchers, be they registered or unregistered not only from the tracks at Armadale, Ayr, Corbiewood, Thornton, Gretna and Shawfield but also from council kennels, dog wardens and veterinary surgeons.” LINK
